Review: What is the UEFA Europa Conference League?
The Europa Conference League was started for the 2021-22 season. It’s the No. 3 club competition in Europe, behind the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. In England, for example, the teams that qualify for the competition (“get into Europe“) is the team that wins the League (or Carabao) Cup — unless that team also qualifies for the Champions or Europa League, in which case the next highest-ranked team qualifies.
For the 2023-24 Conference League, Aston Villa qualified from England, because League Cup winners Manchester United also qualified for Champions League by finishing third in the Premier League.
All these European competitions, aside from their Finals, take place during the same weeks of the schedule, with Champions League games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and Europa and Conference League games on Thursday nights. In fact, other than the Final, the dates for the Conference League are the same as the dates for the 2023-24 Europa League.
Here is more on the UEFA Europa Conference League.
